Response;-the Climate change Explanation;-it is believed that the main reason for the decline of amphibian species is climate change. Global climate change has made conditions more favorable for a new disease (chytridiomycosis) thus indirectly leading to extinctions and the decline of amphibians. - Direct consequences of climate change can also be expected because amphibians may be more sensitive to climate change than other species. Due to their permeable skin, biphasic lifecycles and unshelled eggs, amphibians are very sensitive to small changes in temperature and humidity
